Geko feat Ard Adz 'Khalas' (OneTape Records)
While some of the lyrics (mainly those exploring women and sex) are questionable here, there's still something undeniable about Geko's new collab with Ard Adz. The vibes and melody are certainly on point, and it deserves a reload for the opening chorus from Geko alone. ‘Khalas’ (Arabic for “stop” in the context of the song) is produced by Trikks and fuses dancehall, r‘n‘b and British rap as the pair pay tribute to their North African heritage. Welcome to the new rap wave.
